I really hope they come up with a way to balance unbalanced servers.At the moment, on my server (Draenor) Halaa is Alliance-controlled about 99% of the time. When the Horde does manage to take it, Alliance players swarm into the zone ("zomg PvP!") and retake it within about 20 minutes.Unbalanced PvP isn't fun. Nobody likes being a group of 10 fighting a group of 20. If Blizz can't solve this problem, Wintergrasp is going to sit unoccupied most of the time on my server.

Well half of your problem is solved already. Its gonna be like auchidoun, so there will be a timer before the ally on your server could retake it.But as for the faction imbalance, not much they can really do about that.They could do single faction free transfers. They should do that. Never done it before.

Actually if I recall properly, there was a recent story of faction specific free transfers to help some VERY Alliance heavy Oceanic realm. I see that being tested a lot more prior to Lich.

That was Thaurissan, with a ratio of 1 alliance to 13 horde or so. Blizzard opened transfers to the realm for alliance (it was also one of the first PvE-PvP transfers available).But yeah, faction imbalances will ruin Lake Wintergrasp. The rewards may be great and people may want to do it, but it's physically impossible to.
